    Bought mine from T-Mobile a week ago first new phone in 5 years, chuffed with all aspects but this evening it won't connect to internet. No other problems that I've come across so far, when it was connecting the icon was 3g, no icon displaying apart from battery & signal.

    Any suggestions & please don't talk techno as I'm a newby, please explain in plain English, thanks peeps :confused:

    Not that I can remember, it came back almost as soon as I'd posted my message & it was fine until last night when the same thing happened again but not as long as the first time.

    it could have been because of the signal on your phone

    Most likely signal, sometimes it says it has 3G when it really only has a tiny bit of 3G signal and that's when it sometimes doesn't work for me. If you have WI-FI, you should ofc be using that, but I find that 3G works well whereever I have 2 blocks or more of signal.

    Hello, if I purchase a Galaxy tab from sprint do I have to purchase the data plan as well in order to use it?
